About Dugga

Dugga is a fast-growing EdTech company, passionate about transforming knowledge assessment in education and providing equal opportunities for each individual to learn and grow. Today our platform for digital assessment is used by teachers and students in more than 90 countries globally and they are quickly scaling up. Dugga is a Microsoft Partner and we are extra proud to have been awarded the Microsoft Global Partner of the Year 2020, for delivering innovative solutions to schools.

About the role

Dugga is looking for a Chief Technology Officer (CTO), who is motivated by challenges and eager to assume overall responsibility for our technical strategy. This is a great opportunity to join an innovative and fast-moving scaleup within Edtech, with high growth potential in the coming years.

As CTO, you will be our technical leader and inspire, motivate, and challenge the development teams on a strategic and operational level. You will act as an ambassador for Duggas values and grow a strong engineering culture and build strong teams. To do this, you’ll set our directions for the team, drive different development projects, and work with our strategy roadmap going forward. This is a vital role for the company and you will report directly to the CEO.

With a holistic view of Duggas technologies, it’s important for you to understand the market needs and business challenges to develop the best solutions for Duggas clients and customers. Dugga is a high transaction system, with many concurrent users, and a need for high availability. When a teacher does an exam somewhere in the world everything needs to work. We are in an exciting phase where the platform needs to evolve to ensure scalability and shifting towards more continuous deployments. This means that you’ll drive initiatives related to what technologies should be used, how the architecture is built, and ways of working when it comes to development.

To succeed in this role, we think you are a coaching leader who always strives to challenge and inspire your team. You are a learn-it-all, not a know-it-all. Furthermore, we think you are responsive and have built successful teams and businesses. You have a broad technical understanding with a commercial mind-set.

With Dugga you get the opportunity to work in a fast-growing company with an abundance of opportunities for both personal and commercial development. Your ideas will be valued and together with the rest of the team you will shape the future of EdTech. Dugga’s office is located in the center of Stockholm.
